Former South Australian premier, Lynn Arnold ordained an Anglican priest at ceremony at St Peter’s Cathedral

From Australia-

The Rev Lynn Arnold, who was Labor premier from September 1992 to December 1993, was one of seven deacons ordained to the Order of Priests at a ceremony at St Peter’s Cathedral on Saturday.

Mr Arnold can now authorise baptism, be solely responsible for Holy Communion, pronounce Absolution (God’s forgiveness after confession) and give the blessing.

Priests may be placed in charge of parishes or can do other forms of ministry, such as chaplaincy.

Mr Arnold, 65, who will continue his role with the “Faith in the Public Square” project at St Peter’s Cathedral, said he felt the same sense of awe as when he was ordained as a deacon last year.
